HOW TO BID

F.A.Q.

What is a Virtual Fundraiser?

It is a silent auction that uses a secure bidding website to allow participants from wherever they are, to view, research, bid and pay for unique items that have been donated to us, (like the mural!) to help raise money for the shelter. 

 

So can I really be anywhere and still participate?

Yes! You can be in your PJ’s at home and still bid on the mural! Heck, you could be in your PJ’s in Canada and participate! Location doesn’t matter, it is all done remotely on your cell phone! So plan on bidding starting on Wednesday July 15th, at 6 PM through Saturday July 25th, at 9 PM!

What do you mean I can bid remotely?

If you have ever used “mobile bidding” on your cellphone at a charity ball or gala, we are using the same technology. If you haven’t used it before, it is as simple as registering for the auction online, receiving a text message link then start bidding. If you are outbid on an item you will receive an immediate text message telling you about the new bid. Then, from wherever you are you can place another bid with the push of one button. Then on May 2nd when the auction is over you can check out right from your phone. You literally could participate from anywhere in the world.

What are the Mural Details?

  • The mural is approximately 12 feet by 12 feet.
  • It is constructed out of plywood
  • The medium is acryllic paint
  • The mural comes apart in about 4 sections
  • It can be seen at Kildare’s Pub, 18 West Gay Street West Chester, PA
  • The winner does not have to disassemble the mural
  • The winner is responsible for picking up the mural and reassembling at the location of their choice
  • The winner can pick up the mural once it is taken down from the construction site

How do I receive the mural after I won?

After the auction you will be contacted by the staff at Safe Harbor to make the arrangements for you to pick it up.

Is this secure?

Absolutely! The company that we contracted with to organize and execute our auctions uses the latest encryption methods for a safe and secure checkout process. 

Can I just make a donation instead?

You sure can! using the same link to the auction registration you can make a donation in any amount to our shelter!

Safe Harbor of Chester County would like to thank Dane and Stephanie from Kildare’s for making this fundraiser possible!
